On outskirts of downtown. Interesting collection of old neon, light bulb-lit signs and advertising signs. Took a tour with guide, which gave a better appreciation of the pieces. Admission price a little steep, especially if a family wants to visit. Shouldn't really take more than...More

Fun time spent with my husband. It is not a huge museum, but beautifully done. It almost felt like walking down the street in the past.

Tour length depends on how many visitors show up. The Saturday we went, there were about 40, so the tour lasted about an hour. There was also an option to stay for a Q & A, and to watch the sign makers on site.
